A look at Yoi Dachi

Yoi Dachi is used as a ready stance in Wado Ryu, but can be used as a first stance in a fight.

Instructions for Technique

The basic stance is in a rested relaxed possition, the feet shoulder width apart, the toes pointed slightly inward with knee's bent slightly so not to lock your knee's, with buttox pulled under, back straight with legs and head, with arms in front of your belt, fist clenched and arms bent.

To go into Yoi dachi, from legs to gether, take a small sideways step with both feet, starting with the left foot first, the arms come over the head, cross over your body and rest with fist clenched, but not tense, in front of you Obe with elbows bent. To apply this technique can be used against a grab, as the attacker comes at your with a doble or single grab your arms come down to strike there fore arms and deflect the grab attempt. Leg possition, in a shorter Kiba-Dachi suggest dropping your weight, so would be effective against a grab attempt, or as a double strike to opponents lower stomach if close enough.
